Need advice on 67 Chevelle

I have the opportunity to purchase a 67 chevelle , it is from a guy that bought it from the original owner , its in pretty good shape , looks to have never been completely painted , the LR quarter has been done and the filler is cracked and falling out and the 1/4's are rusty , not as bad as most 67's , the floor is perfect and the bottom of the fenders have holes , its an original 283 probably with a 2speed pwrglide and the interior is real nice , no tears in anything but the drivers side of the seat. I was just curious as to what most people would pay for something in this type of shape ,I can get it for $7,000.00 but Im not sure if thats too much , I know stuff like this is just getting rediculously priced but this seems pretty fair . I'm a bodyman so doing the work is nothing , I do it all year long for other people in my garage .Any help would be great , thanks.

That seems to be waaaayyyyyyyyyy steep! A friend of mine just bought a 67 SS Chevelle, decent, no rust, wavy, needing some tlc, for $3500. No engine or trans.

I agree, even if you are talking Canadian dollars that seems steep to me.

Hard to say.............Like you say, if the bodywork can be done easilly by you, it may be worth your while. Check your rear body mounts carefully.....These cars are known for these rusting....especially here in the east. If its a western car, they are probably good.

Has anyone been watching the price of muscle cars these days? If it is as nice as you say, especially the body then 6 or 7k is a good price in my opinion. I paid 5k for what was a completely rusted '66 138 vin super sport chevelle and had to replace every panel but the roof and firewall. I have 20k invested and another 10k to go, and thats doing everything myself except paint.

I just sold a car that was pretty similar to what you are describing for $6000. It was a 6 cyl car. Then the guy turned around and put it on ebay and got $7000 for it. It did have low miles and ran like a new car.

I'd say that a v-8 car in pretty good shape might well be worth $7000 if it's complete and running.

DUDE, first time ive seen your posts, brings back fond memories, i bought a 66 SS 396 4 speed in 71 for $1200!! and it was my DD for many years. it started to rust under the chrome trim around the rear window and the rear quarters at the bottom (trunk leaks, you know) i switched to plastic cars (vettes) because i hate rust. there is still a soft spot in my heart for your car.

Ahh yes, the rear mounts especially the floor support directly above the differential.. keep in mind its the only floor support not available as a repop.. I had to make my own using what was left of the original as a template. two weeks and a few "start overs" and I managed to produce a respectable replacement.. Guess its nothing compared to what the pro's do, but for a hobbiest in a home garage it can be a real challenge..

My 68

It sounds a lot high to me as well. I bought my 68 SS impala ragtop 4 months ago. Numbers matching car 327, bucket interior. Granted it needed total resto, but I bought it with a 2dr hardtop parts car for $1800.00 - The deals are out there, just have to be patient. If you do your own bodywork as I do at my shop, what most call a hard case, can be easy to us. You say it is 7000.00, I will have less than that in my ragtop completed doing a frame-off resto. What's a finished car worth? (rhetorical) Good luck in your decision. Jerry
